Microsoft XBOX 360 4GB Console with Kinect Bundle
Top Questions See all 5 Q&A
I see people writing 5-star reviews on the basis of their other family members playing...Let me tell you a story about the Xbox 360.
First off, the Xbox gaming content has always been a great success in the industry. It has been a rival to Nintendo and the Sony Playstation since day one. I have personally owned a Xbox 360 but opted to trade up for the Xbox one.
The problem with this particular bundle is the fact it only has 4GB of storage! With the huge inventory of Xbox games, the profiles stored from games alone will fill up storage. Though, it may not seem like an issue at first, you or your family members may want to download a game from the Xbox Live Arcade. Guess what...it takes storage. If you are looking to invest into the Xbox 360, you need to purchase a system with at least 500GB. I personally would get 1 TB.
There are work arounds with the storage concern. You can purchase additional storage for the Xbox by two methods.
1) Storage replacement hard drives made by Xbox or
2) Utilize any external hard drive you may have lying around (it will require reformatting once connected to the Xbox). I use a 1.5TB hard drive with my Xbox one since my kids filled the 500GB with game demo downloads from Xbox Live.
The Kinect was an innovative rival to the Nintendo Wii. The best part about it is it does not require the use of additional controllers...just your hands. My kids absolutely loved this for the first 3 months, but found themselves back to playing regular games with the controller. If you plan on using the Kinect, you have to buy Kinect specific games. (Note: my kids still haven't used the Kinect since)
Overall, great system. Unfortunately, with the release of Xbox One, this console is old news.
